The bio of "Dog the Bounty Hunter" says that he has 12 children. These
are the ones I can account for:

1. Duane Lee
2. Leland
3. Little Lisa
4. Cecily (though she may be Beth's daughter)
5. Tucker (in prison)
6. Bonnie Jo
7. Gary 

Who are the rest of Dog's children, and what are their ages?
There is no answer at this time.

Here is a bit more - Scroll halfway down the page to mrs. peel and
then keep reading.  See if you can figure it out!  :)

"As I understand it, Dog has been "married" 4 times, with Beth the
current relationship. There are 12 kids, Leland is third son, Duane
Lee is either the oldest or second oldest son, I've seen him referred
to both ways, but since he's named after Dog, oldest seems the most
logical (I know, why am I applying logic to this situation?!). They
seem to have the same mother.

One of the 3 blond children is a boy - "Gary Boy" -- hard to tell with
the long hair though. I haven't got it clear whether..."

Dog has been married five times: LaFonda Honeycutt (m. 01 Apr 1972 in
TX), Anne M. Tegnell (m. 22 Aug 1979 in CO), Lyssa R. Brittain (m. 22
Jun 1982), Tawny Unknown (m. about 1992), and Alice Elizabeth "Beth"
Smith (m. 20 May 2006). NOT including his step-daughter, Dog actually
has fathered 12 children, which brings his total child count to 13 if
his stepdaughter is included in the count.

(1) Christopher Chapman, born c. 1969. He was adopted out at about age
5 and didn't know that Dog was his father until he was past
20-years-old. Chris worked for a while for his father in CO. Chris'
biological mother is unknown.

(2) Duane Lee Chapman II, born 21 Jan 1973. Mother: LaFonda Honeycutt.
Married Teresa R. Roybal 01 Dec 1999. One male child: Dylan, born c.
1996. He is also raising Teresa's three female children from her
previous marriage: Jodi (born c. 1992) and Jasmine and Jennifer (born
c. 1995).

(3) Leland Blaine Chapman, born 14 Dec 1976 in Groom, TX. Mother:
LaFonda Honeycutt. Married and divorced Maui Unknown. Two male
children: Dakota Chapman (born 24 Mar 1995) and Cobie Chapman (born 07
Dec 2000).

(4) Wesley Chapman. Birth date unknown. Mother unknown - possibly Anne
Tegnell. He has only a slight relationship with his father.

(5) Zebediah "Zeb" Duane Chapman. Born 01 Jan 1980 in University, CO.
Died 31 Jan 1980 in CO. Mother: Anne Tegnell.

(6) James Chapman. Birth date unknown. Mother unknown.

(7) Nicholas Chapman. Birth date unknown. Mother unknown. He has no
relationship whatsoever with his father.

(8) Barbara Katy Chapman, born c. 1982 in Denver, CO. Died 19 May 2006
in Fairbanks, AK. Mother: Lyssa Brittain. Had only a slight
relationship with her father. Had a relationship with Mr. Unknown.
Child: Travis Drake-Lee Chapman (born c. 2002).

(9) Tucker Dee Chapman, born 08 Sep 1983. Mother: Lyssa Brittain.
Sentenced in 2002 to 20 years in prison - he may have been released
recently (unconfirmed).

(10) Lyssa "Baby Lyssa" Chapman, born c. 1988. Mother: Lyssa Brittain.
Had a relationship with Mr. Unknown. Child: Abbie Mae Chapman.

(11) Bonnie Jo Chapman, born c. 1998. Mother: Beth Smith.

(12) Garry Chapman, born c. 2000 in HI. Mother: Beth Smith.

There actually may be a 13th biological male child to whom Dog is
father. Unconfirmed. Allegedly, this child was born to a woman to whom
Dog was not married.

Other: Stepchild, Cecily Barmore, born c. 1992. Mother: Beth Smith.
Biological father: Keith A. Barmore.


Other notes:

Beth Smith actually gave birth to four children. She lost custody of
her first child - a male allegedly named Dominic. She has no contact
with her first-born whatsoever.

Beth Smith's father is Garry L. Smith (currently in failing health in
CO - 2006). Mother: Unknown.

Tim Chapman, though sharing Dog's surname and often referred to as
Dog's "brother" is not, in fact, any family relation whatsoever to

Duane Lee "Dog" Chapman, born 01 Feb 1953 in Denver, CO, is the eldest
of four children born to Wesley Duane Chapman (born 06 May 1930 and
died 09 Aug 2000 in CO) and Barbara Cowell (born 11 Mar 1934).
Official State of Colorado records list Dog's birth date as 01 Jul
1953, which seems to be erroneous. All but one of Dog's siblings is
unknown, though one brother's name is thought to be Russ Chapman.

I may have had Christopher's birth date incorrect. Perhaps it was
Nicholas who was born c. 1969 - the one who has nothing whatsoever to
do with Dog.

I'm not entirely sure about the orders of birth for all of the
children. Christopher and Wesley may actually be children of Dog and
Lyssa Brittain. I don't think that anyone has got the full 4-1-1 about
this confusing family.
